Marty's poem from Utica Boilermaker Road Race

Boilermaker Logo

My friend Marty, race director extraordinaire (and teacher, RD and coach during school year:)went up to Help with a National road race, the July 13 Utica Boilermaker 15K...
here is his answer to my question 'so how was Utica'??

I did not run
I did not jog,
I did not toe the start, nor blog.

We laid out the 'mats'
despite the gnats,
then came out, Rats!

Mike and I were in charge of the 10k split,
which also was the 5k start,
we had over 11,000 chips,
which registered perfectly!

Then we went to the party, and were back stage with the band and the VIP's

yes- like us!

First of all, Emmy, congrats on your age group win this weekend! Saw it on Frank's blog and was really excited for you :)

Second, in regards to the Boilermaker, just want to say a quick thanks to Marty for volunteering! Though I have to say I'm glad he didn't say he was responsible for the mats at the start or I would have been pretty annoyed with him... so frustrating not to have a chip time.
